    A friend of mine has just had her 18 year old Yorkshire Terrier PTS
    This is a poem she wrote a while back. The little boy was deaf and blind for 2 years.


    What will I do, I do not know?

    When our time is up and you must go,

    I sit here now and watch you sleep

    I feel to numb to even weep.


    The sands of time have gone so fast

    You’re an old man now your youth has past,

    I never realised the pain I’d feel

    When all you ills I could not heal.


    I watch you now in your own little world

    Where nothings seen and nothings heard,

    I sit and think of the times we’ve had

    Where things were good and never bad.


    It’s nearly time to say goodbye

    I’ll try and be strong I’ll try not to cry,

    You are my world, my shining star

    And though not here you wont be far.


    For you will always have the biggest part

    Throughout my life of my heart.

    I will never feel a love like this again

    I could never go through so much pain.


    I want to thank you for all you have done

    The good times, the smiles and all the fun.

    And now that our time is growing short

    I want to leave you with just one thought.


    Although you have to go away

    I’ll love you more and more each day,

    It wont be forever and it wont be long

    Until were together were we belong.


    Because mummy’s coming just wait and see

    Then it’s back to normal how things should be,

    Me and you, You and me


    So ill see you soon my fighting lad

    And ill try so hard not to be sad,

    Because ill be thinking of how things will be

    Me and you, You and me….

    OMG that is soo sad but also beautiful

    This is what i have on my website for the Springer we loved so much and lost

    I STOOD BY YOUR BED



    I stood by your bed last night,
    I came to have a peep.
    I could see that you were crying,
    You found it hard to sleep.

    I whined to you softly
    As you brushed away a tear,
    "It's me, I haven't left you,
    I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

    I was close to you at breakfast,
    I watched you pour the tea,
    You were thinking of the many times,
    Your hands reached down to me.

    I was with you at the shops today,
    Your arms were getting sore.
    I longed to take your parcels,
    I wish I could do more.

    I was with you at my grave today,
    You tend it with such care.
    I want to re-assure you,
    That I'm not lying there.

    I walked with you towards the house,
    As you fumbled for your key.
    I gently put my paw on you,
    I smiled and said "It's me."

    You looked so very tired,
    And sank into a chair,
    I tried so hard to let you know,
    That I was standing there.

    It's possible for me,
    To be so near you every day.
    To say to you with certainty,
    "I never went away."

    You sat there very quietly,
    Then smiled, I think you knew…
    In the stillness of that evening,
    I was very close to you.

    The day is over…
    I smile and watch you yawning,
    And say, "good-night, God Bless,
    I'll see you in the morning."

    An when the time is right for you,
    To cross the brief divide,
    I'll rush across to greet you,
    And we'll stand, side by side.

    I have so many things to show you,
    There is so much for you to see.
    Be patient, live your journey out…
    Then come home to be with me.

    It does me too Janice, I know just how much her little dog meant to her, she's totally on her own now. She has devoted the last two years to making his life the best it could be

    Very beautiful. Very moving.

    Rona, do you think your friend would mind if I sent this to my mother in law who recently lost her much loved elderly Chihuahua?

    Sincere sympathy to your friend.

    I'm in floods of tears now. Having put my 20yr old yorkie to sleep 3 years ago it just brought it all back.

    I hope your friend will soon find peace knowing she is the only person her dog could have relied on to make that last decision. In time the good memories will overwhelm the sadness and when she thinks of him she will smile rather than fight back the tears.

    Reading poems like that make me feel so lucky to have my little one, as I know that one day she will be gone. Time does go so fast and we should make the most of it.

    A lovely poem, thank you. Please pass on my deepest sympathy to your friend.

    I admit I tell Monty everyday how much he is loved. It's too late when they are gone. I do the same with hubby and the kids, "aw mam, get off" is what my kids tell me but I don't care :D
